Craft Scotland at SOFA Chicago 2012
Craft Scotland will take six of the nations’ most qualified craftspeople to the international exposition, SOFA Chicago in November 2012. SOFA (Sculptural Objects and Functional Art), is a key event for the international collectors market, and regularly receives upwards of 35,000 visitors across three days.
Scotland is recognised as one of the most creative and skilled crafts nations in the world, and this is reflected in the collective talent of the group of craft-makers travelling to Chicago. Work by Leith based ceramicists Craig Mitchell and Rebecca Wilson and Edinburgh based glass artist Jessamy Kelly will be joined by jeweller Craig Stuart from Dunkeld, Aberfeldy based furniture maker Angus Ross, and artist basket maker Lizzie Farey, who works from her studio in Galloway.
This film showcases the makers and their work and is introduced by Emma Walker, CEO of Craft Scotland:
Craft Scotland's participation in SOFA was made possible through support from Creative Scotland and the equipment used to create the film above was purchased via an AmbITion Scotland grant.
